NIC FY 2021 Management Development for Women and Minorities in Corrections Curriculum Update
The National Institute of Corrections seeks to update the curriculum entitled: Management Development for Women and Minorities in Corrections. The goal is to provide women and minorities with the opportunity to acquire knowledge and skills vital to their development as effective managers and leaders in corrections.
Despite the increase of career opportunities in the corrections field, qualified staff are often hampered in career advancement because they lack significant management experience. Sometimes the challenge is that only a few employees have the needed skills to take on comprehensive assignments. The challenge to the most informed and insightful executive leader is to work to exceed federally mandated expectations in the workplace to advance women and minorities when real constitutional challenges to civil rights are viral. Diversity is a business asset and a key element of business success. The updated curriculum will provide the strategies and skills needed by women and minorities to promote correctional management career development.
